Fan of mathematics, punk rock, sci fi, social issues, politics, theoretical physics, dry humor, and run-on sentences. I make computers do stuff for money.

I tend to program mostly in python (for django, and mathematical research), javascript (because it's almost like python), C# (for no particular reason), Java (I'm learning to Android), Objective-C (because, well, everyone else is doing it), and C++ (sometimes I need to twiddle bits and write directly to memory).

comment Is RAID0 inside a virtual machine faster?
I was thinking the same thing. But, my ESX host has a couple dozen drives in it, if I have some time in the future I'll give it a shot and do some benchmarks. Thanks

Perhaps a proactive reboot once every 2.9 months is in order :)

Mike - this is more of a serverfault.com question. And, you might also try asking your web host.

comment Running many databases under one instance
Which database server? This would be easy with some servers, near impossible for others.
